Can't remove site from Acitve directory

By pasasant ·
I installed a site in Active Directory on my PDC,in the Sites and serivces tree I installed a remote W2K server as a remote site. I removed the remote server and deleted it in active directory. However the site name for that remote server will not delete. Is there any way to remove the site, I used the meta cleanup tool but the site did not show up in the list. I get a error saying a service is busy. The dead site seems harmless, however I want to get it out of the Sites and Services tree.
Anysuggestions?

Can't remove site from Acitve directory

If you have an orphaned Site, then you will probably need to run NTDSUTIL on a DC in order to remove the Site.

For more information about the Ntdsutil utility, refer to the Support Tools documentation on the Windows 2000 CD-ROM in the \Support\Tools folder.
Also, there are several Technet article on Ntdsutil. Start with article Q315131:

hope this helps

Verify that there are no subnets assigned to the site and delete all site-link/site-link bridges, then attempt to delete the site again.
